Archeology 2 (2020).
Dan Hendrickson’s Archeology series uses cyanotype and watercolour to remind viewers of the razor’s edge between the real and the imagined. The series combines two mediums to produce abstract images that provoke questions such as, “How much does our mind invent after an experience? What elements are omitted? What artificial monoliths loom large in our minds?” Our perception of light and matter can evolve over time through memory, in radically different ways from one individual to another. These images play with the concept of memory and experience as the artist combines photographic exposures with shades of feeling.
